Hyundai Motor Company is the official sponsor of FIFA World Cup 2022. The South Korean auto major has announced that it will help the world’s biggest football tournament achieve its carbon neutral goal by providing eco-friendly vehicles for 50 percent of the event’s passenger transportation. This marks the first time in the history of the competition to have eco-friendly vehicles in the event fleet at this scale.

Hyundai will provide 616 fleet vehicles including 446 passenger vehicles, with just over half (226 units) being hybrid electric (HEV) and battery electric (BEV) models. Hyundai will also provide 10 Elec City electric buses for use during the event, which takes place in Qatar from November 20 to December 18, 2022.

“Hyundai Motor and FIFA share a strong commitment to make this year’s event a sustainable success through the use of clean mobility,” said Jaehoon Chang, President and CEO of Hyundai Motor Company. “By providing our eco-friendly hybrid and battery electric vehicles as ground transportation, we expect to achieve our shared goal of making the World Cup in Qatar a win-win for Planet Earth and humanity.”
